Homework 3 Robert Capas Falling Solider

Whelan’s uses a great amount of evidence to help back up why he believes Capa’s photo isntĀ staged. Personally I am torn between whether or not it was or wasnt. The message behind the photo is very relevant but the images scenery doesn’t seem like it occurred during an actual war. To me becauseĀ thereĀ arent any other soldiers around andĀ the persons facial expressions dorangĀ seem genuine, thoseĀ areĀ reasons I believe the photo may be staged. Capa is know for going to extreme lengthsĀ to getting the rightĀ photo, so I wouldn’t put it past him to be right by the side of a solider being hit by a bullet.
